John Beasley-Positootly! [Resonance Records]

Top L.A. jazz keyboardist Beasley headed east to record this smoking sextet set with such Gotham mainstays as drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts and trumpeter Brian Lynch. Downstairs, James Genus delivers state-of-the-art doubling with maximum upright swing and interplay on the title track and solo space on “Dindi,” and savvy funk groove interpretations on “So Tired” and “Elle.”
